What a ride!

To the 15-year-old players, coaches, parents and the Reedley Babe Ruth organization:

Thank you for the past three years of fun, thrills, chills, tears and outstanding baseball. Three district and two state championships are something to be proud of.

We have come to know each and every one of you, your parents, extended family and even some grandparents the last few years and it’s been a real pleasure. We are one big family.

We were with you in Lompoc, Utah and right here in “R Town.” What an experience in the best possible way.

 We have watched you grow from boys to young men. It’s been a real joy. Thank you for being who you are and what you have become. We feel like your honorary grandparents. We know our son coach Jordan [Urbano], coach [Todd] Lowery and coach [Jarod] Chiasson feel even closer to you and are sad to say so long for now. This is not the end but only the beginning of the next stage of your young lives. Know in our hearts we will be with you always.

Again, thanks for a great ride. We wish you all the best in your future endeavors knowing we’ll meet again.

In closing, we offer you the old Irish blessing:

May the road rise to meet your feet,

May the wind be always to your back,

May the sun shine warmly on your face and the rains fall gently on your fields (baseball),

Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.

We love you. 

Ralph and Carol Urbano
